Disney Channel star, Zendaya seems to be taking on a major role in the new Sony reboot of Spiderman. Announced yesterday on The Wrap, the actress will be playing Spider-Man’s love interest Mary Jane Watson in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘ and fans have already been going crazy online about it.
It was previously announced that the 19-year-old would be apart of the movie, but no one knew the role she would play. Also in the movie, british actor Tom Holland as a teenage Peter Parker, a.k.a. Spider-Man. We definitely got to see what Holland is capable of as he made his Marvel big screen debut as Spidey this year in the Disney/Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War”. Much has been released as of yet as to how close Zendaya and Holland may be in the movie, but with it being more in a teenage phase, I’m pretty sure it may be a little more playful and smart mouthed situations.
